I write further to Head Office Circular NP/036/18, 16th February 2018. We have written to the company expressing our concerns over the lack of consultation with the union over purchase of vehicles with insufficient welfare facilities. In addition, the matter has been placed on the agenda for the Network Rail National Safety Council on Thursday 8th March 2018. A further report which included reference to a workshop (but not consultation) was placed in front of the National Executive Committee who carried the following resolution:
That we note the correspondence on file and that no consultation has taken place. Therefore we instruct the General Secretary to ensure that no representatives attend any such workshops etc. We remain available to attend any such formal consultation.
Regional Councils, Branches and our National Representatives to be advised.
I am acting in accordance with these instructions Please make the contents of this circular available to all appropriate members.
